How could I have been so stupid? I thought things were going well between us. I stayed in contact with him as well as I could. I drove to see him. I spent hours searching for the perfect birthday gift. I took the time tomake him a card because he said it was something he'd love. I went to see him after work on his birthday in an attempt to make it the bestbirthday he'd ever had. I'd thought thatI succeeded. Like I said, I thought things were going well.

I drove to see him again last night, because he wanted to see Spiderman 3, and I wanted to spend time with him. Everything was fine, I thought. He wanted to hold hands, and we talked off and on during the movie, just like normal. After the movie he asked me how my day was going, then when we were out in the parking lot he told me, "I think it's over." It was the last thing I expected.

He saidhe doesn't think we're "compatible," whatever that's supposed to mean. He was the first person I really liked in a long time, the first person I let myself like in a long time. I even cried in front of him.I can't believe Idid. I never cry in front of people, especially not the person or people who hurt me. It's a sign of weakness, and when the other person isn't hurting, I hate letting them see that I am.

It's not like this is the first time I've been dumped. But at least every other time I've understood why. This time, I don't. I feel so used, and so stupid.

He wants to stay friends. The only problem is,I don't trust him anymore. Surprisingly, I did. And I don't trust many people. But the way he did this changed that. The only halfway decent thing is that he did it in person. That doesn't make it any better though.

My birthday is in a week. Let's just say this wasn't exactly the kind of birthday gift I was expecting in return for what I did for him.
